EIU PAWS (Panther Access to Web Services)


PAWS (Panther Access to Web Services) is an online system which enables students, faculty, staff, and annuitants to access a variety of information via the Internet. Trouble logging in?

Over the next few months, EIU will be upgrading to a newer version of PAWS - one that is more intuitive, modern, and mobile-friendly. Upgrades and downtimes will happen on regularly scheduled Sunday mornings.

PAWS is available 24 hours a day except 6 a.m. - 12 p.m. Sundays and other times with prior notification to your EIU email address. Please call EIU User Services at 217-581-HELP (4357) if you have forgotten your Net ID or password or are having problems signing on to PAWS.
